Thought I would do something a little different today and do a review on just one product.
Smashbox cosmetics have been a must have for me since they have become available in the UK. However they are a high end product and can be on the pricey side however that is their only downside all their products are amazing and work exactly as they say on the packet.
Today I want to introduce you all to the Smashbox Smokebox eye shadow palette, there are two sorts but I believe this is the newest one available.
The palette cost me £32 however I was able to have a free sample with my delivery and I used their photo finish primer which was a sample and lasted ages however, here is a link to the UK page with the palette:
The description of the colours are as follows from top left – right and bottom left- right:
Shade Description: ALABASTER (Matte Bisque), THUNDER (Shimmery Smokey Grey), BLACKOUT (Matte Jet Black), ROAST (Reddish Brown with Gold Flecks), BLACK CURRANT (Suede/MatteMatte Plum), SEAFOAM (SheenSoft Mint)
Here are the gorgeous colours available and they are super pigmented, the swatches match the top and bottom layer as you can see in the two on the left.
The shade Alabaster is hard to see in this picture however I find it lovely as a highlight and a base for the other shadows.
I love what you can do with these shades and it creates the perfect smokey eye, the shade Blackout is perfect for an eyeliner also.
The palette provides you with a large mirror that takes over the top lid which is so convenient especially when travelling because you do not have to fight over a tiny mirror.
The palette also provides you with a double ended brush with two different sized ends which are convenient for smaller and more precise lines and the larger end is perfect for blending, as seen below.
The brush is not like any cheap brush you get with other brands or palettes this one is smooth and a perfect applicator for you eyes.
Another part I found amazing and convenient was at the back of the palette there is a small booklet attached which when you pull the sticker back it gives you two looks to choose from and the colours you can use to create it. I found this perfect as when I first bought it I did not know how to include all shades into one looks and this little booklet provided me with all details. And the easy step by step guide makes it easy for any beginners.
I would have to give this palette a
It includes all the essentials for the perfect smokey eye and the brush is perfect to help you with that.
I would recommend this to anyone as it has a perfect step by step guide and the shadows can give you so many versatile looks whether you use the shadows on their own or all together in different ways.
Like I said earlier the only downside is the price as it is quite a lot for 6 colours however they are super pigmented and last for ages and are well worth the money.
For more ways to use this palette Smashbox have a YouTube channel where they show you how to get the most and best looks with their eye shadows.
